While digging around for some tunes to bring to work today, I happened upon my copy of Dream Syndicate’s The Days Of Wine And Roses and realized this was one of the last two records I will ever bring home from Easy Street Queen Anne! I quickly dug up the other record from this haul (American Stars And Bars) and put them on.
Next thing I know, I’m tearing through my record shelves (and tape racks) hunting for Easy Street tags, realizing how much of my collection came from those crates! What a bummer to see this store go.
As sad as this news is, it’s not over for Easy Street (thank god). The West Seattle store is still going strong and with the current plight of indie record stores, this should be a cruel reminder to shop locally and keep the places we love alive! We can’t have any more great shops biting the dust.
So, good-bye Easy Street QA. Thanks for all the jams! Here is Yo La Tango closing out the very last Easy Street Queen Anne in store! Rest In Peace, ESQA.
